Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:54:21 -0700

Cowboys | Ryan Williams appears to be a longshot

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:52:56 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams looks to be a longshot for the final roster, because he is not a good special teams player and would have to help on special teams if he is in a reserve role.

Jaguars | Chad Henne to audible more?

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:48:24 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne has been given permission to call more audibles in his second season under offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

FANTASY TIP: This could certainly free up the playbook for Henne and Co., though he's still not exactly a reliable fantasy quarterback. The wide receiver corps is somewhat lacking in Jacksonville, too. Henne is still a backup quarterback in all scoring formats.

Cowboys | Mackenzy Bernadeau working with starters

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:40:25 -0700

Texans | Andre Johnson more comfortable

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:35:33 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said he's feeling more comfortable with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Texans' offense.

Texans | Arian Foster sits

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:31:30 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Monday, July 28. Foster had his hamstring stretched during practice Sunday, July 27.

FANTASY TIP: This was just a precaution. Foster is too valuable to risk getting injured in training camp and he'll probably see limited action in the preseason. It is best to keep an eye on him, however. As long as he's healthy, he's an RB1 candidate in all scoring formats.

Cleveland Indians SS Jorge Martinez was released Monday, July 28.
